FAIRFIELD, CA, May 3, 2021 – Uplift Family Services and Solano County Behavioral Health are pleased to announce the initial launch of the Solano Community-Based Mobile Crisis Response Program in partnership with the Fairfield Police Department and the Suisun City Police Department.
Uplift Family Services will begin the program in the cities of Fairfield and Suisun City and will receive dispatch calls to provide crisis response services through the local police departments. This service will be available from 11AM-10PM, Monday through Friday, with the plan to expand to 7 day per week coverage upon full implementation. A phone number for community members to access will be coming soon. Over the next year, the program will continue to grow with the goal of providing services throughout all of Solano County in partnership with cities and stakeholders.
Through a contract with Solano County Behavioral Health, Uplift Family Services has hired clinicians, case managers, and peer support specialists to go into the community as a team to support children, youth, and adults in crisis regardless of insurance or immigration status with the mission of de-escalating the situation, linking to necessary services, and supporting the coordination of care.
Solano County Behavioral Health is proud to launch this vital program during May, which is National Mental Health Awareness Month 2021, bringing awareness to our community that mental illnesses are real and recovery is possible. This long-awaited service requested by community members, persons served, family members and stakeholders, is funded by Solano County and the voter approved Proposition 63, Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) as described in the Integrated Three-Year Plan.
